You will NOT find a huge expensive Herkimer Diamond worth thousands!! Don't go there expecting to find the Hope diamond. If you go there with reasonable expectations you will have a good time.
You are going into a rock quarry, it will be dirty, hot, there will be rocks everywhere. Come dressed with this in mind.
This is physical labor, you will be moving, lifting and breaking rocks. You WILL get hot, dirty and sweaty.
We went there on our summer driving vacation. After reading about it on Trip Advisor we brought our own tools and safety glasses. We packed lunch and plenty of drinks and snacks.
The best luck we had was searching under the rocks for small to medium diamonds. My daughter and her friend got hot and tired so I took them across to the campground to sit in the river. This gave mom some peace and quiet.
It was a good time away from the high tech noise.
